Finished runner-up on good-to-soft ground over an extended 1m here last month and put in a fair effort when beaten 8L into fourth at Pontefract subsequently. Finished well beaten over this trip on seasonal debut.
Pleasing debut for this yard when finishing third over 1m at Pontefract (soft). Has placed over this trip off a much higher mark in the past.
Ran well to finish third over 7f on the AW at Lingfield in March but was well beaten at Chelmsford subsequently. Stamina to prove stepping up in trip.
Registered his second victory of the year when winning over 1m at Lingfield on the AW recently. Return to this trip should prove no inconvenience racing off a 5lb higher mark in this contest.
Placed in a couple of maiden races over 1m1f last August but disappointed on handicap debut and pulled up over hurdles at Sedgefield when last in action. Cheekpieces tried on stable debut.
Finished third over an extended 1m1f at Wolverhampton last month on his first outing since being gelded. Slightly disappointing over this trip subsequently and makes his return to turf in this.
Lightly raced and a winner over C&D on good ground on handicap debut last August. Heavy ground likely to blame for poor performance subsequently and he is one to note on seasonal debut with forecast underfoot conditions in his favour.
Stepped up on seasonal debut when finishing runner-up on his return to the AW over this trip at Lingfield last time out. Interesting to see if he can reproduce that on his return to turf.
Maiden after nine starts but ran well to finish third over this trip at Redcar (good-to-soft) on his final outing of last season. Worth a check in the market.
Victorious over 6f and 7f last year and ran well when tackling an extended 1m for the first time when finishing fourth on good-to-soft ground here on seasonal debut last time. Stepping up in distance.
Successful on the AW over this trip in January but held in two subsequent starts on that surface. Shaped as if this return to 1m2f would suit when weakening over an extended 1m3f at Windsor (good) last time.
Sole success last season came in a soft ground selling contest over this trip at Redcar in October. Well held on both starts this term and others make more appeal.
